Parable of the Matchsticks

One of the readers of this blog asked for an English version of the story “Ang Parabula ng mga Posporo” which I posted here.

The original story was actually written by my late mother in English. I translated the story in Filipino and changed it a bit. As requested, I made an English version of the adapted story (The Parable of the Matchsticks). All illustrations are by samutsamot_mom.

      Please click on the picture of the parable. A PDF file of the English version should open in another tab. From there, you can view and save the PDF file by right-clicking on the page and choosing “Save as.”
